Hi..I'm completely new to this but hoping someone might be able to offer some help or advice. We have a 23 yr old daughter with Autism & mild/moderate LD. She has been served notice at her care home and we are looking to move to a house with an annexe, where we hope she can live as independently as possible with a 24/7 care package.
Does anyone have any experience of this kind of arrangement?
How does the local authority assess her contibution to care costs?
What is a realistic amount to allow for living costs ?
Does anyone have any experience of community DOLS?
Is it best to apply for Deputyship automatically (can't do LPA as she doesn't have capacity) or only if we have any issues?
Can she/we apply for any grants for any alterations we need to make to ensure it meets her needs?
There's probably 101 things we haven't thought of, so any advice would be gratefully received.
